Telefonica joins Amazon's net-zero 'Climate Pledge'

Wednesday 21 April 2021 | 09:45 CET | News
Telefonica said it has become one of the first 100 companies to join The Climate Pledge, an initiative co-founded by Amazon and the NGO Global Optimism back in 2019. The Pledge requires signatories to commit to achieving net-zero carbon by 2040, a decade ahead of the Paris Agreement target date. Amazon said the Pledge had 53 backers at the end of February, and has now passed the 100 mark after 52 businesses including Telefonica joined.
